. we have had a certain point where the clintons, clinton helped elect obama. obama called him immediately. if obama can adopt a clinton's second term, they will be very strong because clinton finished with an enormous plurality in the economic side of things. he had a tremendous run as president. most people say if bill clinton were running this time, he would have run bigger than obama won. the public likes him and the like hillary. she has been a great secretary of state. even the opponents like her. she would be a very strong candidate i think. i would encourage her to run and i do not think she would have any opposition. i know that governor cuomo of new york and the governor of maryland -- tavis: will biden run? how long do you think -- she has the name recognition. >> she will be 69. tavis: as long as she has -- does not declare in or out she is handicapped in the field. how long does she have to have to make a decision? >> this is interesting. i am wondering about 2020. i am confused because i think chelsea were wound -- will run. grandson.orge bush's he is a great litt

petraeus. president barack obama should not have accepted his resignation. we seem to care more about the sex lives of our leaders down their real lives of our soldiers. i want to pick that apart one piece at a time. he suggests that his resignation says more about the nation about him? what do you mean? >> it worries me that we can throw away the leaders so casually. general petraeus is one of the more prominent generals of our time. the only general the american public has really been known since world war ii. a lot of generals tried and failed in iraq. petraeus succeeded. here we have a leader who has done well. something happened between him and another person, a private consenting adults, nothing illegal, and we throw him out. i do not think we can afford to do that. we did not use to do that. dwight eisenhower carried on with his chauffeur, a very good- looking red-haired british woman. he was not fired. ike, you gotta go home, you had an affair. that would be crazy. that is kind of what we're doing these days. i think president obama should have said, you screwed up. you need t

that is a great question. that is what people did. not to equate obama's lying to rummy because romney was in a class by himself in any election cycle. there were things that obama did that played with facts. i have -- that is what happened. as democrats and liberals get excited about the obama victory, they should remember that romney failed i think in part because no one really knew where he stood. while he was lying about his record, lying about obama, republicans and democrats this election agreed on one thing. no one could say for sure what' romney was on on any specific point. if he had been a starter candidate, he might have won. if the republican party had a slicker version, more human version of romney, alessa beta version, they might have gone further and won. that was lucky for the democrats. tavis: you have given me a wonderful segue which is now what the future of the gop is. what kind of person into the future, i have -- do they have to put up given the demographic shifts in this country? >> they are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. their first impul

with regard to the text and the showtime series. i thought i read that you hoped obama would win. tell me what you expect tomorrow and why you hope the president will pull this off. >> i am thinking about from 1940 until now. just given the relatively impressive agenda versus the aggressive agenda, the united states has to go forward. it is trying to do something to reform itself, and he is our only hope. there is not much shift to the left, but when we feel the urge there is some hope. >> why do we believe there is some hope and when you believe both parties are bought by big banks? >> i believe the second term changes, and i think john f. kennedy ran on that, and he knew it would give him oxygen. obama needs the second term. i think he will be stronger against republicans. >> i think he got some wind from the occupied movement. i think he learned it is not going to work. he is doing more things we want him to do. >> whoever wins is not going to win with a mandate. tell me why i should not believe things are going to be more divided in the next four years than they were in the past. >> the be

four years, it's been a horrible thing to see, trying to cast shadows on the legitimacy of barack obama as president of theni e environment, the atmosphere of the next four years. >> ifill: i'm very curious about something that michael just mentioned which hasn't come up at all tonight which is mitt romney's religion. at the beginning of this election we thought this is going to be another test of america's ability to handle a new history-making moment. in this case a mormon, a member of the church of the latter-day saints and we never were able to really get a fix on whether that was a factor. do we know any more tonight? >> my sense is it was not -- and some of the credit goes to the obama campaign, even -- it was never raised even in a hidden way. and some credit goes to the american people. when romney talked about my church, my faith, my pastoral work, i thought they that played well. people responded well toll that. so we almost had a case where we had the president of the united states-- if romney had won-- the senate majority leader both being mormons. >> woodruff: if anything,

or not in the obama era a door has been at open for greater appreciation of african-american art. i ask that for the obvious reasons, because there are some people for whom black history does not start until the black president gets elected. is there something that has happened, you think, that may be leading to a greater embrace and appreciation for our culture and contribution? >> we started in 2006. i think we sensed a change in america in 2006, 2007, even before barack obama became president. i think there is more willingness to understand the story, but the story has not been told. it is the story of the europeans, the indians, and the africans building america. the kinsey collection and our family has gone about trying to say we are part of this story and that narrative is a powerful narrative of accomplishment and triumphed. over the past six years, we have been able to reach 3 million people. i mean, we have just had so many actions, so many cities, so many museums, and the general response has ben, "we did not know that." that is what we start with any time we do a performance.

you ever imagine barack obama now come in a second term, which revealed some believes will free him up, whatever that means, do you ever imagine him saying the phrase, has president, the prison investor complex? >> the way eisenhower once said the military industrial complex and heads turned and some world? i do think so. i know for example that the film has been made available to the president and i hope that come in the coming weeks and months, it will become something that it will not be fighting off just the philistines and washington. i would like him and others around him look at it and look at things like jim crow and take stock of what his legacy will be. barack obama's first administration was a bit of confusion for many of us in the fight against the war on drugs. i spoke to 1/5 person who said i am not a drug czar. that comes from the wrong mindset. don't call it a drug war because we do not think that is a war against zero people. i thought, great, there is a new sheriff in town. the obama administration and whether it is because of them or because of washington, and i am p

to the election, there was not a single question about poverty in the last election between obama and mccain. >> middle-class, middle class, middle-class. tavis: you cannot read this book without understanding how history has played out with this divide, this growing divide between the have doubts and the have nots. >> much of the -- with the have- gots and the have-nots. >> the worrying greece, the civil war in greece, turkey, all of this comes up and its chairman in the face and he takes the british point of view it and we become a colonial supporter, in vietnam, in china -- it is a very strange policy that we take. we don't act for the arab world. we move in a direction that is essentially the core of the world. that gets worse in the 1950's when gillis and eisenhower come into power. and it is repeated in these countries. >> even in the united states, you have this gap. the top 1% of americans, the top richest 1% have more wealth than the bottom 90%. the six heirs to the walmart fortune, $90 billion, that is equivalent to the lowest 30% of americans and this is getting worse. that is par

. there's a little bit of a political aspect to this which is known president obama when he was senator obama and petraeus first met, they did not like one another. and i don't think that people in fact the whitehouse fully trusted general petraeus. it doesn't mean anything in this whole thing but it wasn't like they were -- >> that got better. >> it did. >> rose: absolutely. >> norah that did get better. the white house really mistrusted him and they thought he would be grand standing used to having high profile. the fact he shut up and stayed off the talk shows and basically broke off the highest media profile ever. >> look it was floated several weeks ago he was going to go to princeton. i was told by close people that petraeus wasn't going to last there long. ers going to move on, there were discussions of people in that agency. that was a conversation i have and also it was floated he wanted the princeton job. >> i'll defer to david ignatius on this but look at the way he got the job which is they called him in to say look you're not getting the joint chief's job. >> rose: it was

. obama game to people. a number of republicans who pushed back on that kind of assessment, i have even seen if you will street personalities that push back on that kind of language. what kind of sense do you get? those comments are being interpreted by those of wall street, many of them a fund- raising age. >> i think the corporate sector and the business community thought that romney could win. he has made missteps in communicating the folks. there is a disappointment in the way that he communicate certain things. i believe the business community thinks the governor romney has the will to lead this country, broadening the tax base at lowering the corporate rate. so that they could higher. we keep hearing commentary from the governor, and it is coming out not the way he intended. what can he say? i am sure there is criticism around it. tavis: maybe it sounds like class warfare the some of us, but i digress on that point. thank you for sharing your side. >> happy thanksgiving. tavis: up next, actress barbara hershey. pleased to welcome barbara hershey to this program, the star of chicag
